Sen. John McCain says congressional Republicans are willing to negotiate changes in the health care system with President Barack Obama, but only on a "step-by-step" basis.

McCain said on ABC's "Good Morning America" he believes the White House summit on the medical care system was beneficial and many people learned a lot from it.

But he also said it is time "to start over. What we're saying is, let's start out on the areas we agree upon." The Arizona Republican said the GOP would be "seriously interested" in negotiating a less complex, less sweeping health care bill with the Obama administration.

McCain said "we want to negotiate and we want to get something done, but the majority of American people say we want you to start over."
